Resolution on Death of Alderman Thomas P. Keane. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, thereupon sub- 
mitted the following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, The City Council has learned with 
profound sorrow of the death of our beloved asso- 
ciate, Alderman Thomas P. Keane of the Thirty- 
first Ward ; and 

Whereas, His passing from this life has brought 
grief and sorrow to his loving family, to the citi- 
zens of the community who have looked upon him 
as their political leader, to his innumerable friends, 
and to the City Council, which for many years 
relied upon his wisdom and understanding of civic 
problems ; and 

Whereas, Thomas P. Keane, during his life span 
of 67 years, by his conduct in public office exem- 
plified those qualities of honesty, initiative, leader- 
ship and public responsibility which mean so much 
to our American way of life, he having served as 
State Representative, Deputy Clerk of the Probate 
Court, Ward Committeeman of the old Thirty- 
fourth Ward, Chairman of the Jury Commission, 
and Alderman of the Thirty-first Ward since 1931; 
and 

Whereas, The absence of Thomas P. Keane from 
the City Council at a time when our city has so 
much need of his services in connection with the

many problems brought about by the war and the 
readjustments which peace will bring, means a 
severe loss to all of us; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, That the mem- 
bers of the City Council of the City of Chicago in 
meeting assembled, do hereby express their pro- 
found grief on the passing of their colleague, and 
extend their heartfelt sympathy to his grief- 
stricken widow and to other members of his family 
as well as to his constituents of the Thirty-first 
Ward; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That the Mayor be and 
he is hereby authorized to proclaim Monday the 
16th day of July a day of official mourning by 
the City of Chicago for the loss of this beloved 
son and that on this day all departments of the 
City government, except those required for emer- 
gency business, be and they are hereby closed 
until one o'clock p. m. on that day; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That the City Clerk of 
the City of Chicago be instructed to enter this 
resolution in the records of the City as a per- 
manent token of the love and esteem in which 
Alderman Keane was held, and that a copy of 
this resolution, suitably engrossed, be presented 
to his widow. 

By imanimous consent committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Rostenkowski moved to adopt the pro- 
posed resolution. Seconded by Aldermen Bowler, Lin- 
dell, Young, Lancaster and Orlikoski. 

The question being put, the resolution was adopted 
unanimously, by a rising vote, and at the suggestion 



of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, the members 
of the City Council remained standing in silent tribute 
for one minute. 



Aldermen Rostenkowski, Bowler, Lindell, Young, 
Lancaster and Orlikoski addressed the Council, pay- 
ing tribute to the memory and character of the late 
Alderman Thomas P. Keane, stating that the people 
of the 31st Ward had lost a dear friend and the City 
of Chicago a valuable public official. They extended 
their sympathy to the bereaved widow and children. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, thereupon ad- 
dressed the Council, stating that the passing of a 
man like the late Alderman Keane caused a person 
to stop and think — that during his tenure of office 
twenty aldermen had died. He stated that aldermen 
and public officials were always working for the good 
of the City of Chicago and that such work often 
caused a decline in their health. He said that he knew 
that Alderman Keane had been tireless in his efforts 
to take care of the needs of the people of his ward. 
He asked the City Council to pray for all the deceased 
aldermen and extended sympathy to Mrs. Keane and 
the family of the late Alderman. 



ADJOURNMENT. 

Alderman Gillespie thereupon moved that the City 
Council do adjourn. 

The motion prevailed and the City Council stood 
adjourned.

Change in Chairmanship of Engineering Board of 

Keview and Increase in Membersiiip by Addition 

of Chairman of Cliicago Transit Board. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

July 13, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On December 29, 1943, the City 
Council of the City of Chicago passed an ordinance 
establishing an Engineering Board of Review for 
the purpose of developing a sound program of pub- 
lic works and the allocation of available funds for 
worthwhile city projects, and for the integration 
of city engineering works with projects undertaken 
or to be undertaken by other local governmental 
agencies and by private industry. 

The ordinance provides that the Engineering 
Board of Review shall consist of the Commissioner 



of Subways as chairman, the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works, the Commissioner of Streets and Elec- 
tricity, the Commissioner of Buildings, and may be 
increased on the invitation of the Mayor to include 
the Chief Engineer of the Chicago Park District, 
the Chief Engineer of the Sanitary District of 
Chicago, and when desirable, a representative of 
each of the other local governments when the en- 
gineering projects of such other local governments 
are involved with city plans. 

Since the adoption of this ordinance a new 
Transit Board has been created by the City Coun- 
cil and a chairman of the Board selected. In view 
of this recent action, it seems highly desirable 
that the Transit Board also be represented on the 
Engineering Board of Review as in the future 
many of the projects now under consideration by 
the Engineering Board of Review will have a di- 
rect bearing upon the development of a modern 
transportation system. 

Therefore, it is recommended that the Council 
amend the above mentioned ordinance to include 
in the membership of the Engineering Board of 
Review the chairman of the Transit Board, and 
that the chairman of the Engineering Board of 
Review be the Commissioner of Streets and Elec- 
tricity rather than the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

By unanimous consent committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Bowler moved to pass the proposed ordi- 
nance submitted with the communication. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yea^ — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, DePriest, Cohen, 
Moss, Francis J. Hogan, Bohling, Lindell, Pacini, 
Hartnett, Michael P. Hogan, Wagner, Kovarik, 
Sheridan, Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Pistilli, Ropa, 
Janousek, Kacena, Fischman, Bowler, Bieszczat, Sain, 
Kells, Gillespie, Upton, Rostenkowski, Brandt, Porten, 
Orlikoski, Lancaster, Cullerton, Brody, Cowhey, 
Crowe, Waller, Merryman, Young, Hilburn, Quirk, 
Keenan — 43. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. Section 20-22 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is hereby amended to read as follows: 

"20-22. There is hereby established an engineer- 
ing board of review. The engineering board of 
review shall consist of the commissioner of streets 
and electricity, as chairman, the commissioner of 
public works, the commissioner of subways and 
superhighways, the chairman of the board of the 
Chicago Transit Authority, the commissioner of 
buildings, and may be increased on the invitation 
of the mayor to include the chief engineer of the 
Chicago Park District, the chief engineer of The 
Sanitary District of Chicago, and when desirable, 
a representative of each of the other local gov- 
ernments when the engineering projects of such

plans. Members of the engineering board of re-

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage. 



Extension of Official Invitation to United Nations 
Organization to Establish Permanent Head- 
quarters in Chicago. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

July 17, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Favorable action by the Foreign 
Relations Committee of the Senate of the United 
States in approving the charter of the proposed 
United Nations Organization foreshadows the time, 
now fast approaching, when the United Nations 
Organization, to promote international co-opera- 
tion and avert future wars, will be a reality. 

It is my thought in this regard that the City of 
Chicago offers the most logical site for the loca- 
tion of the permanent headquarters of the United 
Nations Organization, and it is my earnest hope 
that, with your approval, an official invitation from 
the City of Chicago be immediately extended to 
the United Nations Organization and appropriate 
steps be taken to further its acceptance. 

In addition to the honor and prestige that would 
accrue to our city by the selection of Chicago as 
capital of the United Nations, my reasons for 
urging this action may be briefly summarized as 
follows : 

Geographically, Chicago enjoys the most favor- 
able location of any world metropolis, being not 
only the greatest rail and highway center of the 
western hemisphere today, but being destined after 
the war to become the world's greatest air trans- 
portation center — closer by air miles than any 
other metropolis to Europe, Asia and South Amer- 
ica. 

Culturally, Chicago offers almost matchless fa- 
cilities in the form of great universities, technical 
institutions, libraries, museums, research labora- 
tories and other institutions of learning, as well as 
a huge pool of technically trained public adminis- 
trators, specialists in international law, economics, 
the physical and social sciences and other special- 
ized fields of learning necessary to carry out the 
functions of the United Nations Organization. 

As a recreation center, Chicago is one of the 
few world cities capable of receiving the thousands 
of men and women who would be associated with 
the operations of the United Nations Organization. 
Our facilities include our many cosmopolitan ho- 
tels, restaurants, theatres, night clubs and other 
places of entertainment; our famous retail estab- 
lishments; our art galleries, museums and centers 
of culture; our facilities for outdoor sports and 
recreation; our proximity to the Dunes and the 
North Woods; the beauty of Chicago's location on 
Lake Michigan, and its year-round climate. 

Psychologically, Chicago would be an ideal site 
for the United Nations headquarters because of 
its distance — in miles and in spirit — from the ha- 
treds and passions of the Old World. Here, rep- 
resentatives of the United Nations would find the 
children and the children's children of their own 



nations proving by living example that men and 
women of different national origins, religious creeds 
and ethnic cultures can dwell in peace and under- 
standing, instead of at war. 

Historically and by tradition, Chicago, better 
than any other city in the world, dramatizes the 
operation of the democratic process which made it 
possible for free men, within a single century, to 
build the third most populous city on the globe 
on the site of a backwoods trading post. 

Finally, Franklin Roosevelt first warned the 
world against aggressor nations in Chicago, in 
his great Outer Drive Bridge speech, and the loca- 
tion of the United Nations headquarters here would 
constitute a singularly appropriate memorial to 
the man who contributed most to make the United 
Nations Organization a reality. 

Because of these various reasons which I have 
set forth and as an initial step in the task of 
securing the selection of Chicago as the capital 
of the United Nations, I have taken the liberty 
of submitting for your consideration herewith the 
attached Resolution, authorizing me to appoint a 
committee of one hundred leading citizens to meet 
in the City Council Chambers and to take such 
action as may be deemed expedient. 

In anticipation of this action, I have taken the 
liberty of issuing a statement to the press, inform- 
ing them of my intention to present the attached 
resolution seeking to make Chicago the capital of 
the United Nations. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

By unanimous consent committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Moss moved to adopt the resolution sub- 
mitted with the communication. Seconded by Alder- 
man Bohling. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yea^s — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, DePriest, Cohen, 
Moss, Francis J. Hogan, Bohling, Lindell, Pacini, 
Hartnett, Michael P. Hogan, Wagner, Kovarik, 
Sheridan, Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Pistilli, Ropa, 
Janousek, Kacena, Fischman, Bowler, Bieszczat, Sain, 
Kells, Gillespie, Upton, Rostenkowski, Brandt, Porten, 
Orlikoski, Lancaster, Cullerton, Brody, Cowhey, 
Crowe, Waller, Merryman, Young, Hilburn, Quirk, 
Keenan — 43. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, Within the near |uture, the govern- 
ments of the United Nations will take action to 
establish a United Nations Organization for the 
purpose of creating international co-operation to 
promote the universal welfare and to avert future 
war; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago offers the most 
logical site for the permanent headquarters of 
such a United Nations Organization, it being today 
the greatest rail and highway center of the west- 
ern hemisphere and being destined after the war 
to become the world's greatest air transportation 
center — the most conveniently located metropolis 
by air miles to Europe, Asia and South America; 
and 

Whereas, The location of the permanent United 
Nations' headquarters on Chicago's incomparable

lake front would give it advantages second to 
none available elsewhere, including not only the 
great beauty of physical surroundings but prox- 
imity to the facilities of Chicago's great univer- 
sities, technical institutions, libraries, museums, 
research laboratories and other cultural institu- 
tions and to the huge pool of technically trained 
personnel from which to recruit technicians and 
experts in the fields of public administration, in- 
ternational law, economics, the social sciences, the 
biological sciences, the physical sciences and the 
other specialized fields of learning necessary to 
carry out its important and extensive operations; 
and 

Whereas, The selection of Chicago as the capi- 
tal of the United Nations would symbolize the 
unity of peoples of all nations, religious faiths 
and ethnic groups and provide for the representa- 
tives of the United Nations a living example that 
peace and understanding can replace war and hate 
when peoples of every section of the globe learn 
to lay aside their primitive and long-standing, old- 
world hatreds and prejudices to build together a 
great city, where peace and prosperity may abide; 
and 

Whereas, Chicago is one of the comparatively 
few cities in the world today, centrally located on 
the great international air routes of tomorrow with 
adequate facilities to serve as host to the thou- 
sands of men and women who would be attached to 
the United Nations staff; its facilities including 
many cosmopolitan hotels, restaurants, theatres, 
night clubs and other places of entertainment; 
world-famous retail establishments; noted art gal- 
leries, museums and centers of culture; facilities 
for outdoor sports and recreation; easy access to 
such other famous recreation centers as the Dunes 
and the North Woods; and a year-round climate 
which obviates the necessity for separate summer 
or winter headquarters; and 

Whereas, Historically and by tradition, Chicago 
is the logical site for the United Nations head- 
quarters, its swift rise from trading post to third 
most populous city in the world within a hundred 
years constituting an inspiring example of the 
operation of the democratic process which the 
United Nations are banded to foster; Chicago hav- 
ing been the scene of such historic events as the 
nomination of Abraham Lincoln by the new-born 
Republican Party and of Franklin Roosevelt by 
the revitalized Democratic Party, and of Roose- 
velt's great Outer Drive Bridge Speech, warning 
against aggressor nations; and 

Whereas, It would be particularly fitting that in 
Chicago, where our departed Commander-in-Chief 
sounded his first warning against aggression, the 
United Nations of a peace-seeking world erect 
their permanent headquarters as a perpetual me- 
morial to Franklin Delano Roosevelt; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago hereby extends its 
official invitation to the United Nations Organiza- 
tion to establish its permanent headquarters in 
our midst; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That Mayor Edward J. 
Kelly be hereby authorized to appoint a committee 
of one hundred leading citizens, representing the 
various civic, social, economic and cultural ele- 
ments of Chicago's life, to meet in the City Coun- 
cil Chambers at a date to be designated by him and 
to take such action as it may deem appropriate 
to further the selection of Chicago as the capital 
of the United Nations Organization.

Proclamations of Mayor. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tions of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which 
were ordered published and placed on file: 

Designation of "Coast Guard Week". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation. 

Whereas, The United States Coast Guard will 
on August 4, 1945, observe the 155th anniversary 
of its founding; and 

Whereas, The United States Coast Guard, as in 
every other war in American history, is once more 
rendering conspicuous service in the defense of 
our Country, by escorting troop ships, convoying 
merchant vessels and taking part in landing opera- 
tions in every theatre of action; and 



Whereas, The United States Coast Guard has 
played an heroic role in every invasion — from 
North Africa to Normandy; from Attu to Guadal- 
canal, and to Okinawa — and thus contributed nota- 
bly to our inevitable victory; and 

Whereas, The United States Coast Guard has 
proved an important factor in the history of Chi- 
cago, by aiding Great Lakes shipping, by main- 
taining lighthouses and other aids to navigation, 
by ice-breaking and by its heroic tasks of life- 
saving and rescue; and 

Whereas, Many of Chicago's sons and daughters, 
enrolled in the service of the United States Coast 
Guard and its women's reserve, the Spars, are 
helping to hasten victory; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim that the 
period of July 29 to August 4, 1945, shall be ob- 
served as Coast Guard Week in Chicago in honor 
of our indebtedness to this gallant service. 

Signed this 16th day of July, A. D. 1945. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



Designation of "Furnace Cleaning Week". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation. 

Whereas, a serious shortage in our coal supply 
is expected to amount to some 40,000,000 tons for 
the current year, according to government esti- 
mates; and 

Whereas, this shortage might have a serious 
effect upon our war production and civilian manu- 
facturing, as well as upon our civilian health and 
comfort; and 

Whereas, it is estimated by heating engineers 
that 90% of all furnaces and heating plants are 
in need of cleaning and repair, which, if carried 
out, would save coal and at the same time pro- 
duce more heat; and 

Whereas, a group of patriotic citizens, cooperat- 
ing with the Department of the Interior, Bureau 
of Mines, has been organized to fight waste in 
the use of fuel under the "National Fuel Efficiency 
Program"; and 

Whereas, this organization with offices in Room 
853, United States Court House, is attempting to 
attract the attention of home owners to this prob- 
lem, and has asked that a week be set aside for 
this purpose; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
of July 22 to 28 inclusive, as Furnace Cleaning 
Week, and do urge that every home owner, apart- 
ment manager and plant custodian set aside this 
week for the thorough cleaning and repair of 
heating plants of all types, whether they burn 
coal, oil or gas, and I urge that all information 
concerning the need of such cleaning to save fuel 
be spread as widely as possible, calling attention 
to the very useful booklet distributed by the Chi- 
cago Coal Merchants' Association, entitled "What 
to Do This Summer to Save Coal Next Winter." 

Dated this 10th day of July, A. D. 1945.

Whereas, the City of Chicago has had a most 
prominent part during the past century in the de-

ful exercise and a means of transportation; and 

Whereas, the coming National Championships

several large properties which require more time 
for the State's appraiser to examine and approve. 
It is apparent that additional funds will be neces- 
sary to meet the accumulated interest; we now 
estimate $7000.00 will be sufficient to cover the 
parcels pending payment. 

It is recommended that your Committee recom- 
mend to the City Council that it authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
request $7000.00 from the State of Illinois, Divi- 
sion of Highways, and upon receipt disburse such 
funds for the purposes hereinabove mentioned. 

Respectfully submitted,

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration the matter of charging for services 
for connections with City sewers by individuals 
and corporations outside the corporate limits of 
the City of Chicago, begs leave to report and sub- 
mit the following proposed order without recom- 
mendation (this procedure was concurred in by 26 
members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes) : 

Whereas, the city's system of sewers is already 
overburdened, now therefore 

It Is Hereby Ordered, That on and after sixty 
days from the date hereof all permits heretofore 
issued to make connections with the city's sewers 
for the disposal of sewage originating outside the 
corporate limits of the city be and the same hereby 
are terminated and cancelled, and all connections 
made thereunder shall be severed and discontinued, 
and that no further or additional permit be given 
any person to make connections with the city's 
sewers for such disposal of sewage originating 
outside the corporate limits of the city, except 
where authorized by the city council and subject 
to the terms of this order, provided, however, that 
the Commissioner of Public Works may permit for 
a limited period of time, not exceeding 10 years 
from the date hereof, unless further enlarged by 
authority of the city council, the continued main- 
tenance of existing or future connections which 
have been or may be authorized by the city coun- 
cil, upon condition that the owners or occupants 
of the premises served by such existing or future 
connections shall enter into agreement with the

Payments shall be made to the Superintendent

receipt of a bill including separate items for water 
and sewer service charges, issued by the Superin- 
tendent of Water. Upon the amount of the sewer 
service charge item rendered in a water and sewer 
service bill there shall be allowed a discount of 
eight per cent provided the bill is paid within ten 
days of the date the bill therefor is mailed, as 
shown by the records of the Bureau of Water. 

The Commissioner of Public Works is directed 
to cause notice in writing to be sent to all persons 
to whom permits have been issued and under which 
such sewer connections are now maintained, in- 
forming them of the provisions of this order, in 
order that they may make arrangements to pay 
such monthly service charges or discontinue the 
disposal of such sewage through such connections 
into the citys' sewers. The Commissioner of Public 
Works is also directed to cause a survey to be 
made to find and locate all existing connections 
with the citys' sewers for the disposal of sewage 
originating outside the corporate limits which 
have been made without a permit, and to cause a 
notice in writing to be sent to all persons re- 
sponsible for or benefitting from such connections 
informing them of the provisions of this order and 
notifying them that it will be necessary to secure 
council authority and city permits, and to pay 
such monthly sewer service charges or discontinue 
the disposal of such sewage through such con- 
nections into the city's sewers. The Commissioner 
of Public Works is further directed to cause bills 
to be sent by the Superintendent of Water to all 
persons from whom sewer service charges should 
be collected as reported by the Superintendent of 
Sewers, itemizing the charges for sewer service 
according to this order. 

In applying the above table of charges for sewer 
service the amount due for a single connection 
serving a single building shall be as set forth in 
the table. In the case of a single connection serv- 
ing two or more buildings the Commissioner of 
Public Works shall fix the amount to be charged 
for such connection so made in accordance with 
the rate set forth in the above table multiplied by 
the number of individual building connections dis- 
charging through the single connection to the city 
sewers. 

The accounts of the Department of Public Works 
shall show all amounts collected as sewer service 
charges and the City Comptroller is directed to 



keep a separate account of all such amounts so 
collected. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Jas. B. Bowler,

who had explained the present activities of O.C.D. in 
Chicago. 

The question being put on the motion to refer, the 
motion prevailed. 

The question next being put on the motion to con- 
cur in the committee report, the motion prevailed. 
(Alderman Waller requested that the record show 
that he voted "No".) 



The following is the subcommittee report: 

City of Chicago 
Committee on Finance 

July 10, 1945. 

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 

Committee on Finance: 

The subcommittee of the Finance Committee, 
appointed to consider OCD expenditures, having 
examined and discussed the subject at a hearing 
on June 20, 1945, submit the following report: 

The Office of Civilian Defense of the Chicago 
Metropolitan Area was created by Presidential 
Order as part of a national organization for a two- 
fold purpose, (a) to prepare for the defense of 
civilian persons and property against possible ene- 
my attack or sabotage and (b) to aid in civilian 
activities in support of the war. During the forma- 
tive stages and while there existed a possibility of 
enemy attack, involving the distribution of OCD 
equipment to safeguard against such attacks, the 
National and regional offices were required. 

Since the success of our military forces has 
brought victory in Europe and has carried the at- 
tack to Japanese home waters and lands, the 
threat of attack on continental United States has 
been practically removed. The continuance of de- 
fensive measures by the OCD is no longer needed. 
The President, therefore, ordered the termination 
of OCD as a national organization, but at the same 
time urged the retention of local organizations to 
continue the support and direction of civilian ac- 
tivities to aid the war effort of the Nation. 

The local OCD organization in Chicago, formed 
under Illinois law, is the Chicago Commission of 
National Defense. It is proposed to continue these 



activities on a curtailed basis under this or some 
other name, in order that the many war activities 
in which the citizens of Chicago desire to and 
should participate may produce results beneficial 
not only to Chicago but to the Nation. These ac- 
tivities are briefly as follows: 

Sale of War Bonds — The OCD has taken the re- 
sponsibility for the house to house canvass in the 
last five war bond drives. Its record is outstand- 
ing, having reached the all-time high of 67 million 
dollars in the sale of subscriptions in the last 
drive. The organization recently participated ac- 
tively in the 7th War Loan Drive. 

Conservation of Greases and Fats — The Chicago 
OCD was the pioneer in the program of appeals 
to the households to save greases and fats for the 
making of explosives. Chicago has led the Nation 
in this activity and has had to redouble its efforts 
since rationing to provide the government with 
the raw materials needed for ammunition. 

Salvage of Tin Cans and Other Waste Materials 
— Constant checking and educational campaigns 
have been carried on by OCD in the preparation, 
handling and shipping of salvaged tin cans. The 
cooperation of the City garbage collection forces, 
as well as private scavengers, janitors organiza- 
tions, restaurants and hotels, have aided the OCD 
in this activity. 

Waste Paper Salvage — The OCD has partici- 
pated in all the waste paper drives, furnishing the 
adult forces to man the trucks for curb pickups 
and to work with the boy scouts and other groups 
in collecting and disposing of waste paper which 
go into cartons for shipment of supplies to our 
over-seas forces. 

Used-Clothing Drives — The OCD participated in 
the recent United Nations Clothing collection by 
house to house canvasses, distributing placards 
and literature and otherwise assisting the local 
committee in the drive and curb pickup. 

Victory Gardens — Guidance to amateur garden- 
ers, assignment of available plots, arrangement for 
plowing and advice in cultivating, harvesting and 
preserving foodstuffs is vital in order to release 
foods for our armed forces. The OCD has greatly 
aided and is aiding the public each year in victory 
gardening. 

Memorial Plaques — By order of the City Council 
memorial plaques are furnished and erected by the 
City honoring the names of those who have given 
their lives in military service during the war. The 
OCD has the duty of checking the official casualty 
lists, conferring with the families of the deceased, 
ascertaining their wishes as to locations, arrang- 
ing for the erection of the plaques and the holding 
of suitable memorial services. A further study is 
now asked of OCD to determine whether a more 
suitable and more lasting type of memorial can be 
established. 

War Housing — By a special arrangement with 
the Federal Housing Bureau, the OCD is main- 
taining a War Housing Office — mostly at govern- 
ment expense, to arrange for shelter for war work- 
ers in the Chicago Area. With the acute shortage 
in housing and the necessity of attracting and 
holding war workers in Chicago industries, the 
War Housing Office provides an essential service. 
The OCD expense is now limited to office expense 
such as janitor work, telephone service and mis- 
cellaneous incidentals. All salaries are paid by the 
Federal Government. 

Servicemen's Centers — Chicago has become 
known nationally and internationally as the great- 



July 17, 1945 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

est host of all great cities to the service men and 
women of the United States Armed forces. Five 
great centers are maintained where every form of 
entertainment, lodging, baths, and meals are pro- 
vided for the lonesome and often homesick boys 
and girls who are passing through Chicago. The 
entire service is absolutely free. The OCD has 
aided by contributing from two to three thousand 
cakes each week as well as candy and cigarettes 
to the Servicemen's Centers. 

These activities are all essential to the prosecu- 
tion of the war. Their need will continue until the 
war with Japan is won. While it is essentially vol- 
unteer work contributed by thousands of patriotic 
citizens, it cannot be successfully and effectively 
carried on without some measure of direction. 
There will always be the necessity for the mainte- 
nance of central and branch headquarters, the 
arrangement of meetings to explain the needs and 
to outline the activities, the distribution of in- 
structions by pamphlets and the continual assign- 
ment of duties to the volunteer organization to 
make it effective. 

The Chicago organization has discontinued all 
activities connected with defense, has dismantled 
its control centers and is removing its public siren 
system for later disposal. It has discontinued the 
publication of its monthly paper "The Alert" and 
will rely upon mimeographed bulletins in the fu- 
ture to be issued as necessary. It has curtailed 
its employed personnel to a minimum (at present 
9 employees on OCD payroll and 12 persons loaned 
from City departments and other local govern- 
ments). Its central office is housed in a City-owned 
building at 23 N. Wacker Drive, which is not suit- 
able for other city uses. It is now studying the 
possibility of vacating an adjacent building rented 
at $75.00 per month to effect a further economy. 

Your subcommittee considers the current activi- 
ties of the OCD essential to the war. Such serv- 
ices cannot be as effectively and as efficiently pro- 
vided otherwise than by a continuation of the or- 
ganization now in existence. The expenditures of 
the OCD have been well below the appropriations 
and by the further economies outlined above will 
be kept within a cost fully warranted by the im- 
portance of the service it renders. We therefore 
approve the continuation of the organization and 
wish to commend the thousands of citizens who 
have patriotically volunteered their time and ener- 
gies through the OCD in Chicago. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John J. Grealis, 
Chairman, Subcommittee. 



Report of Tests of Kunways of Chicago Municipal 
Airport. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report : 

Chicago, July 17, 1945. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works transmitting a report of 
tests as to the strength of runways at the munici- 
pal airport, begs leave to report and recommend 
that said report be published and placed on file. 

This recommendation was concurred in by 26 



members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Jas. B. Bowler, 

Chairman. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer final action on said committee report. 

Alderman Bowler moved to concur in the report. 

The motion prevailed. 



The following is the report referred to in the fore- 
going committee report: 

Chicago Municipal Airport 

Tests on Strength of Runways 

Ordered by 

Mayor Edward J. Kelly 



Report op Department of Public Works 

Written by 

Oscar E. Hewitt, Commissioner 



City of Chicago 

Department of Public Works 

Commissioner's Office 

June 7, 1945. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chicago: 

Sir — Your instructions ask the answer to this 
question : 

"Do the runways of the Chicago Municipal 
Airport have sufficient strength to support all 
airplanes now operated and those anticipated in 
the immediate future?" 

Plowed New Ground — The department made an 
extensive test. The results cannot be compared 
with any other commercial airports. The Civil 
Aeronautics authority has not made any load test 
of runways and has no information that any other 
city has made a comprehensive test. It appears 
that Chicago has pioneered in this direction, as it 
has in other fields of operation and maintenance of 
airports, the results of some of which have been 
adopted in the requirements and restrictions of 
the C.A.A. 

Kind of Tests — The Bureau of Aviation obtained 
preliminary specifications for one of the heaviest 
commercial land planes now contemplated for 
domestic traffic. The future plane selected has a 
specification weight of 162,000 lbs., which is a ton 
more than the largest land plane ever built. This 
81-ton plane (in the specifications) has a pressure 
weight of 12,500 pounds per square foot and a tire 
print of 3.1 square feet. 

Then the technicians of the Bureau of Engineers 
applied twice the pressure to the runways which 
this 81-ton plane will exert. That is a pressure of 
76,800 pounds to a runway area of 3.1 square feet. 

Character of Pavement — The runways of the 
Chicago Airport, extending over 8.4 lineal miles 
varying in width from 175 to 300 feet, have an 
asphaltic macadam surface. The thickness of the 
pavement is from fourteen to thirty-four inches. 

A macadam pavement has little or no carrying 
capacity of its own. Its ultimate strength is de- 
pendent directly upon the character of the subsoil 
and the amount of drainage. The Chicago Airport 
has 100,320 feet (19 miles) of drainage and the 



3778 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



July 17, 1945 



subsoil is largely a firm clay. The base of the 
pavement is composed of broken concrete, bricks, 
granite blocks and cinders, with sand used ex- 
tensively to fill the voids. 

Test Results Summarized — A total of 543 tests 
were made. The results briefiy are: Of the 543 
tests, seven spots were found where the load ca- 
pacity was less than 60,000 pounds per 3.1 square 
feet. One of these spots sustained 44,000 pounds, 
and the other six 56,000 pounds. The seven spots 
bearing less than 60,000 pounds are located on four 
runways. The other five have a load capacity, 
without exception, of more than 60,000 pounds per 
3.1 square feet. It is planned as soon as practical 
to reinforce these seven spots. 

Interpretation of the Results — Applying the test 
results to the present and contemplated planes (so 
far as we have been able to obtain information) 
these views now seem reasonable, when the seven 
spots have been reinforced. 

1. Present Domestic Planes — The strength of 
the runways will accommodate any commercial 
liner of more than twice the present wheel load. 

2. Future Domestic Planes — The strength of 
the runways will be 33% to 60% greater than 
that required by any domestic land plane proj- 
ected with reasonable certainty, of which we 
have been able to get information. 

3. Present Military Planes — The runways will 
have a greater strength by 33% percent than re- 
quired by any plane now operated. 

4. Future Military Planes — What the future 
will bring forth is highly speculative. An ex- 
treme illustration, Reginald G. Standerwick Gen- 
eral Electrical Engineer, recently told 200 scien- 
tists, army officers and others intimately con- 
cerned that the future planes, with a quarter of 
a mile (1,320 feet) wing spread, will result from 
knowledge developed through the research of jet 
propulsion and gas turbine engines, which tur- 
bine engines spin fifteen thousand times a minute 
and shoot a plane at a speed of sound (741 miles 
an hour). A closer view of the future is a re- 
port that an army plane weighing 320,000 pounds 
is under construction at Fort Worth, Texas, for 
which a concrete runway 24 inches thick is be- 
ing built to get in the air. We believe it is a 
good guess that the landing gear will be rede- 
signed to permit this plane to land on runways 
of less strength. 

5. Transoceanic Planes — One company has 
announced it has ordered (to be delivered 2^/^ 
years after V-Day) a plane with a seating ca- 
pacity of approximately 200 persons and a weight 
of approximately 300,000 pounds, which appears 
to be an approximate duplicate of the army plane 
reported under construction. This prospective 
increased weight is not highly disturbing so far 
as the strength of runways are concerned. Let 
it be made clear that the total weight of a plane 
is of limited significance as related to the pres- 
sure on a runway. That pressure is determined 
by the number, design, air-pressure and size of 
tires in relation to the total weight. Engineers 
assert it is theoretically possible to design a 
300,000 pound plane so that its pressure per 
square foot will not be considerably higher than 
the pressure exerted by a plane weighing much 
less. If the landing gear designed on this 300,000 
pound plane is of the type planned for the 162,- 
000 pound plane, the runways at present are of 
sufficient strength to support the largest plane 
with a small margin of safety. 



Oversea Travel — Before the 300,000 pound plane 
is made, tested and placed in operation, it appears 
almost certain that one or several trans-oceanic 
companies will be certified by the Civil Aeronautics 
Board. Undoubtedly, they will be eager to start 
service immediately thereafter and will use such 
planes as are then available. If they accept, as 
they must, in the interim, a plane weighing 160,000 
pounds or less capable of carrying about 100 pass- 
engers, the strength of the runways of the Chi- 
cago Municipal Airport will accommodate them 
without the slightest question. So far as strength 
of runways is concerned, Chicago is ready today 
for transoceanic travel in immediate future. 

Regarding future planes for the armed forces 
and transoceanic companies, the following observa- 
tion seems reasonably certain. The Civil Aero- 
nautics Authority has designed a system of air- 
ports for the entire nation and has recommended 
federal aid in the building of them. When U. S. 
aid is given, it can safely be assumed that the 
Federal Authorities will require (in Chicago new 
airport or airports) a runway strength which they 
then think will be adequate for sundry decades. It 
may be added that it is unreasonable to believe that 
the system of airports can be built within a reason- 
able time without substantial federal assistance. 

The above views are based upon the tests of the 
city engineers, conducted between March 19th and 
April 17th, — an adverse period. The large amount 
of winter snow placed an enormous amount of mois- 
ture in the ground, consequently it is reasoned that 
tests made in dry weather would show a higher 
sustaining load on the runways. 

Still Another Test was Made — Since these tests 
were made, we have had other and more vivid tests 
of the airport runways, which are probably more 
convincing to the non-technical person. These last 
tests were supplied by the Seventh War Loan Army 
Show. The army brought to the airport about 100 
planes of various weights and designs. They 
brought to Chicago all five of the army units, air- 
borne Airmada, the Pursuit Unit, the Glider Unit, 
the Cargo Transportation Unit, and the air-troop 
unit. During the War Loan no other city or state 
airport is scheduled to entertain all five units. New 
York City is skipped altogether in the program. 

The heaviest planes built were flown to Chicago. 
The Chicago runways took everything without dif- 
ficulty, which the army had to offer. 

Heaviest Plane Built — The heaviest land plane 
ever built is the B-19 — only one has been con- 
structed. It broke through the runway at Santa 
Monica when it was run out for its first test flight. 
It was brought to Chicago during the Army Show. 
It had no difficulty whatsoever. This plane weighs 
160,000 pounds. Its home base is in Dayton, Ohio. 
It has visited no city in the country except Wash- 
ington and Chicago. It is not scheduled to visit any 
other city during the Seventh War Loan Drive. 

Another large army plane is the super-fortress. 
Its army label is B-29 and it weighs about 120,000 
pounds. It is the plane now bombing Japan almost 
daily. In the last few months more than 200 super- 
fortresses have landed and taken off from the Chi- 
cago Airport without the slightest difficulty. 

Other Army Heavies — Still another large army 
plane is the B-17. It was accommodated most satis- 
factorily at the airport. 

General Mark Clark flew from Paris to Chicago 
in a C-54. Well over 2,000 of these planes have 
landed and taken off from the Chicago Airport in 
recent months. May it be repeated that every

REPORTS OP COMMITTEES

heavy army plane in operation has utilized the run- 
ways of the Chicago Airport. 

Present Air Liners — Now switching to the ex- 
perience of the commercial airliners, of which there 
are eight operating in and out of Chicago. At pres- 
ent they are flying 304 planes. Of these fifteen are 
of light weight, such as the Stinson, Beechcraft and 
the Lodestar. These lighter crafts are used as 
route planes. Of the 304, two hundred and eighty- 
nine are utilized for commercial traffic. Five of 
these are Stratoliners, which weigh about 48,000 
pounds each. The tire pressure per square foot on 
runways is only 8,000 pounds. The other 284 are 
DC-3s, of which the weight is 25,000 pounds and 
the pressure per square foot on the runways is 
less than 8,000 pounds. When the seven spots are 
reinforced, the sustaii^ing capacity of the runways 
will be approximately 20,000 pounds per square 
foot. 

The equipment used by the engineers to check 
the load capacity of the runways was a truck and 
a trailer. The combined weight of both was 113,000 
pounds. That is equivalent to a railroad car loaded 
with 46 tons of coal. That was hauled all over the 
runways and constituted in itself a pretty good test 
of its strength without the application of 76,800 
pounds to an area of 3.1 square feet. 

Future Domestic Craft — Now turning to the 
commercial airliners of the immediate future. 
Probably a typical representation of these is the 
DC-7, which will carry about 100 passengers. It 
so happens that the maker has a factory in Chicago 
and the specifications were more readily obtainable 
than from other manufacturers. The DC-7 has a 
specification weight of 162,000 pounds, which is a 
ton more than the weight of the army bomber 
B-19 — the largest land plane so far built. It is 
expected that the pressure per square foot on run- 
ways for the DC-7 will be about 12,500 pounds. 
When the seven spots are reinforced, the entire 
runway system will have a load capacity of about 
20,000 pounds per square foot, or about 60 per cent 
more than is required for the prospective DC-7 
plane. Still in the field of future domestic airplanes, 
it should be said that one company has represented 
to the department that it will convert the army 
super-fortress — B-29 — into a commercial airliner, 
which will probably be known as C-97. 

It has also been represented that this C-97 will 
have a wing spread, length, height and the landing 
gear type of the B-29; and probably the only im- 
portant change will be the enlargement of the 
fuselage to provide two decks. The total weight of 
the B-29 is about 120,000 pounds, but it is possible 
that it will be increased by a larger fuselage to 
130,000 pounds. The tire pressure of the B-29 per 
square foot is in the neighborhood of 12,000 pounds 
and the new plane may have a pressure up to 
15,000 pounds. It- is not altogether improbable, 
however, that the .landing gear designed for the 
C-97 will be so changed that the pressure per 
square foot will be less than on the B-29. But if 
the pressure of this plane is 15,000 pounds per 
square foot, the runways will have a 5,000 pound 
per square foot margin of safety. 

All of this statement relates alone to the strength 
of runways. Other factors enter into the adequacy 
of runways, as the length, the width and the dis- 
tance between different runways. To illustrate — a 
runway may have sufficient strength but inadequate 
length for the plane of the future. 

May it be repeated, this statement relates only 
to the strength of the runways. 



Results op the Load Test. 

All of the 90 tests on the 4 miles of taxiways 
showed a strength of 76,800 pounds or more on 
each 3.1 square feet. The taxiways are built of 
concrete 8 to 11 inches in thickness. 

The following table shows the number of tests 
made on each runway, the number which sustained 
76,800 pounds per 3.1 square feet and the number 
of tests on each runway below 76,800 pounds. And,

NINTH WARD. 



Citation of Members of U. S. Coast Guard Temporary 
Reserve for Meritorious Service. 

Alderman Lindell presented the following proposed 
resolution : 

Whereas, On July 31, 1945, the United States 
Coast Guard Temporary Reserve will muster out 
of the service some 1,200 Chicagoans, all of whom 
had patriotically volunteered their services for the 
period of the war; and 

Whereas, These 1,200 Chicagoans, many of them 
since before Pearl Harbor, have devoted from 
twelve to thirty-five hours per week, without pay, 
to active duty with the United States Coast Guard 
Temporary Reserve, in the protection of Chicago's 
waterfront from fire, sabotage and potential enemy 
action; in the patroling of Chicago's harbor and 
adjacent waters; in the safeguarding of Chicago's 
shipping — much of it devoted to the transport of 
essential war goods; and to the humanitarian task 
of rescuing lives and ships in distress; and 

Whereas, On account of our city's normal eco- 
nomic dependence on water-borne traffic and 
especially on account of its accelerated wartime de- 
pendence on its waterways to supply our armed 
forces with ships and other instruments of war, the 
steady, arduous and often heroic labors of these 
members of the United States Coast Guard Tem- 
porary Reserve proved a most notable contribution 
to the war effort; and 

Whereas, It has always been the tradition of 
the City of Chicago to honor its citizens for deeds 
performed in behalf of the common welfare, when 
over and above the line of duty; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, that the City 
Council of Chicago hereby cites for meritorious 
service the 1,200 patriotic sons of Chicago who so 
faithfully and honorably have discharged their 
duties as members of the United States Coast 
Guard Temporary Reserve during this critical pe- 
riod of the war; and 

Be it Further Resolved, that a copy of this reso- 
lution be presented to Commander Fetter G. Pet- 
tersen. Commanding Officer of the United States 
Coast Guard Base in Chicago, and to Lieutenant 
Commander Harold H. Elliott, U.S.C.G. (T) R.,

Approval of Appointment of Members of Chicago 
Airport Selection Board. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

August 21, 1945. 

To the Members of the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — History tells us that the original 
site of Fort Dearborn was selected because of the 



August 21, 1945 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3821 



availability of the natural transportation facilities 
— the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. 

Also, the metropolis of Chicago, as it is today, 
came into being largely because of the vast net- 
work of railway transportation systems terminating 
here. 

Originally Chicago's pioneers were limited in 
their trading business to the area served by the 
river and the lake. Then with the coming of the 
railroads our sphere of commerce extended through- 
out the middle west, and later to every nook and 
corner of the nation, as the railroads lengthened 
their lines. 

Today, we are on the eve of what appears to 
be a new and possibly an even bigger trade era for 
Chicago. I refer now to travel and transport by 
air. Today, in point of time, Europe is no farther 
from Chicago than was Michigan City or Lockport 
in Fort Dearborn days. Indeed, any spot you may 
name on the globe — in Asia, South America, Africa 
or Australia — is less than 24 hours from Chicago 
by air ; less than was the east or west coast by rail. 

History will repeat itself — and as air travel and 
transport grows — so will Chicago. 

Today, with the war's termination, we find Amer- 
ica air-minded to say the least. There are literally 
thousands of trained pilots. I refer, of course, to 
our veterans of the air raids on Berlin and Tokyo. 
The world has acclaimed them as the best. 

We also have other thousands of men highly 
skilled in ground operations connected with flying. 
I am told we have thousands of planes, built for 
the war, that may become available for use by the 
commercial airlines. If not, we have the facilities 
for turning out new planes quickly, as both Hitler 
and Hirohito now well know. 

In fact, from a brief survey it would appear as 
if we in Chicago had on hand all the component 
parts of a gigantic air travel and transport system 
except large scale landing facilities. 

The people of Chicago have made up their minds 
that Chicago should get ready to take its place in 
the new air travel and transport age which is upon 
us, as evidenced by their overwhelming approval 
of the 15 million dollar bond issue for airport pur- 
poses on June 4. 

The time has come for the selection of another 
municipally owned airport site to augment present 
facilities. 

To that end and by virtue of the power and au- 
thority given to me by statute, I hereby appoint 
the following-named men to the Chicago Airport 
Selection Board, to serve when called upon until a 
new airport site is agreed upon: 

Ralph H. Burke 
John Doherty 
John Fitzpatrick 
John Gottleib (Colonel) 
Oscar E. Hewitt 
Robert Kingery 
Merrill C. Meigs 
William A. Patterson 
Frank C. Rathje 
Werner W. Schroeder 
H. Ellis Stewart 
Robert Strauss 



P. J. CuUerton 
Arthur G. Lindell 
George D. Kells 

The above list, as you will note, contains the 
names of persons who in the years past have evi- 
denced their interest in the study of things aero- 
nautical in Chicago. They know Chicago and its 
problems and should have good judgment in rec- 
ommending new airport facilities. They represent, 
I believe, every element that goes to make up Chi- 
cago's social, economic and commercial life and will 
serve us well. I respectfully request your approval 
of these appointments. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Brody moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily to permit immediate consideration of and

ments.

Authorization for Appointment of Committee to Co- 
ordinate Functions of Rehabilitation and Rede- 
velopment of Slum Areas and Construc- 
tion of Housing Projects, 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, By virtue of Senate Bill 201, passed 
by the Sixty-fourth General Assembly of the State 
of Illinois, the City was authorized to acquire prop- 
erty necessary or appropriate for rehabilitation or 
redevelopment of blighted or slum areas and the 
City Council of the City of Chicago has authorized 
the issue and sale of $5,000,000 of bonds for that 
purpose, said bond issue having been approved by 
vote of the electors of the city of Chicago at the 
election held on June 4, 1945; and 

Whereas, By virtue of Senate Bill 339 the State 
of Illinois appropriated $10,000,000 to the State 
Housing Board for the purpose of making grants 
to housing authorities of this State and to land 
clearance commissions for the construction of hous- 
ing projects; and 

Whereas, The acquisition of property for re- 
habilitation or redevelopment of blighted or slum 
areas pursuant to the powers granted to the cor- 
porate authorities of the City by Senate Bill 201 
and the acquisition of property to promote the 
improvement of housing pursuant to Senate Bill 
339 should be coordinated, if possible, in the city 
of Chicago; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the Mayor be and he hereby 
is authorized to appoint a committee consisting of 
two members of the City Council and the Commis- 
sioners of the Chicago Housing Authority to de- 
vise ways and means for coordinating the functions 
of rehabilitating and redeveloping blighted or slum 
areas and the construction of housing projects in 
the city of Chicago under the provisions of Senate 
Bills 201 and 339 and to report its conclusions 
with recommendations to the City Council.

Extension of Official Invitation to Gen. Charles 
de Gaulle to Visit Chicago. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, General Charles de Gaulle, provisional 
president of the French Republic, and throughout 
the period of Fascist oppression now happily ended, 
the living symbol of Free France, will shortly visit 
the United States of America; and 

Whereas, The people of Chicago throughout the 
city's history have always treasured the principles 
of political liberty of the French Republic and held 
high in their hearts the traditional friendship which 
has ever bound together the peoples of France and 
the United States since the days of Lafayette and 
the American Revolution; and 

Whereas, Today General de Gaulle is the head 
of the government and symbol of the Republic of 
France; and 

Whereas, It has always been the custom and 
tradition of the City of Chicago to extend its hos- 
pitality to distinguished visitors in its midst, par- 
ticularly to heroes whose lives and deeds have 
contributed notably to the building of the princi- 
ples of political liberty and democracy; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago does hereby extend 
its official invitation to General de Gaulle and his 
party to visit our city; 

Be it Further Resolved, That, in accordance with 
this official invitation, Mayor Edward J. Kelly be 
authorized to appoint a civic reception committee 
to aid the Mayor in making arrangements to wel- 
come General Charles de Gaulle; and to make such 
other plans and arrangements as the Mayor may 
deem appropriate in connection with Chicago's re- 
ception to the head of the government of the Re- 
public of France.

Suggestions for Prompt Restoration of Motorbus 

Service on Kimball Av. and Other Streets and 

for Repeal of Other Wartime Measures 

Affecting Transportation. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

August 21, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In view of the changed conditions 
brought about by the termination of the Japanese 
war, it is suggested that the City Council and its 
committees take up at once with the Office of De- 
fense Transportation and the officials of the local 
transportation companies, the possibility of restor- 
ing local transportation service on the Kimball 
Avenue line, the Kimball-Homan Avenue route, the 
Ogden Avenue route and on all other routes where 
service was suspended due to wartime restrictions. 

In addition, Chicago agreed in 1942 to reduce its 
overall rubber-borne transportation mileage to 15% 
below the 1941 mileage. This too, it appears might 
be lifted if the Council takes prompt action and 
makes such a request. 

Another matter which now should be given con- 
sideration is that of needed extensions of service 
in a number of locations. It is suggested that the 



August 21, 1945 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

Council and its committees give consideration to 
pressing the City's applications before the Com- 
merce Commission and that communications be ad- 
dressed to the officials of the local transportation 
companies requesting the installation of these serv- 
ices. My understanding is that the Office of De- 
fense Transportation has lifted its restrictions in 
this regard. 

■ Chicago riding public has cooperated fully during 
these war years in enduring crowded car conditions 
and more or less intermittent service. They have 
done this wholeheartedly in an understanding of 
the requirements of the situation. It now appears 
they are entitled to relief. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



Rejection of Bids for Dismantling of Air Bald Siren 

bistallations and Authorization for Performance 

of Work by Dept. of Public Works. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

August 17, 1945. 

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 
Committee on Finance of the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to advertisements, sealed 
bids were received on August 9th by me as chair- 
man of the Chicago Commission on National De- 
fense for the "dismantling of air raid siren in- 
stallations." Work includes furnishing of all 
materials and labor for dismantling twenty gasoline 
engine driven air raid siren installations, the trans- 
porting and placing of air raid sirens, timber, iron 
straps and bolts in the City warehouse together 
with miscellaneous work appurtenant and collateral 
. thereto (including the restoration of parapet walls 
of the fire stations and other public buildings upon 
which the siren towers were installed). A deduc- 
tive alternate was included in the bidding form for 
a credit to the City if the timber, iron straps and 
bolts comprising the towers were allowed to become 
the property of the contractor rather than being 
delivered to the City. 

Two bids were received as follows: 

Speedway Wrecking Company — amount of bid 
$13,840, deductive alternate $2,540, making a 
net cost of $11,300. 

Power Equipment & Supply Company — amount 
of bid $15,900, with no deductive alternate. 

Because of the scarcity of timber in the markets, 
the matter was discussed with the Department of 
Public Works as to whether it was to their advan- 
tage to retain the timber, iron straps and bolts at 
the cost of $2,540 rather than allowing it to be- 
come the property of the contractor. I am informed 
by Mr. Hewitt, Commissioner of Public Works, that 
the Department of Public Works desires not only 
to retain the lumber, but that they wish to perform 
the work directly with City forces of removing the 
sirens to the City warehouse, dismantling the tow- 
ers and restoring the premises, which work they 
are willing to perform at a charge of $9,500. 

Since this effects a direct saving to the City and 
retains for the City material which is now scarce 



and is needed for construction purposes, it is rec- 
ommended as follows: 

1. That the bids received on August 9th for 
the "dismantling of air raid siren installations" be 
rejected and that the comptroller be authorized to 
return to the respective bidders the checks which 
were deposited with the bids. 

2. That the Department of Public Works be 
authorized to undertake the work of removing the 
sirens, dismantling the towers, and performing the 
necessary restoration work, appropriating for their 
uses the materials comprising the towers.

Proclamation 

Whereas, the Honorable Harry S. Truman, Presi- 
dent of the United States, has proclaimed Wednes- 
day, August 1, 1945, as Army Air Forces Day 
throughout the nation, and 

Whereas, the Army Air Forces with its great 
air armadas piloted and manned by our heroic 
fighting men contributed immeasurably to victory 
in Europe through the destruction of enemy lines 
of communication and supply centers as well as 
acting as covering support for our ground forces, 
and 

Whereas, the Army Air Forces, coordinating 
their eiforts with the air power of the United 
States Navy and Marines formed the mightiest 
striking force in the world having made possible 
the victorious sweep of our armies across the Pa- 
cific against Japan, having already almost com- 
pletely destroyed the Jap Navy and through de- 
struction of enemy transport and commercial 
shipping, virtually paralyzing Japan's ability for 
retaliation, and. 

Whereas, it is most fitting that communities 
throughout the nation recognize these heroic ac- 



complishments of the Army Air Forces in celebra- 
tion of their feats of valor which have speeded the 
day of final victory and thus saved countless of 
thousands of American lives; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, as Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Wednes- 
day, August 1, 1945, as Army Air Forces Day in 
Chicago, and urge all citizens to participate in cele- 
brations planned for that day in appropriate com- 
memoration of the glorious services being rendered 
our nation and its people by the Army Air Forces.

and training of our youth and children; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Defender Bud Billiken 
Club, has for a generation been dedicated to the 
task of moulding and directing young lives in the 
duties and principles of citizenship; and 

Whereas, this year's 16th Annual Bud Billiken

of our armed services who have been injured in 
performance of their patriotic duty; and 

Whereas, the parade will form at 33rd Street 
and Michigan Avenue, at 11:00 A. M., and pro- 
ceed to the site of the picnic and demonstration in

day, August 11, 1945, as Bud Billiken Day, and

inter racial good will and understanding which 
prompts all people to live, work and play together

Proclamation 

Whereas, it was the dauntless courage and re- 
sourceful spirit of the early American pioneers 
which was responsible for our country's growth 
and development into the greatest nation on earth 
qualities which have lived on from gen- 
eration to generation of Americans and established 
the United States supremacy throughout the world 
as evidenced by the sweeping victories of our 
Armed Forces in the present conflict for the sur- 
vival of democracy and freedom, and 

Whereas, it was this same sturdy pioneer spirit 
of Chicago's early settlers through their courage 
and initiative for our city's tremendous growth and 
progress, and

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3825 



Whereas, every Chicagoan is deeply grateful for 
the vision, foresight and courage of our city's early 
pioneers, and 

Whereas, it has been the custom for the citizens 
of Chicago to pay honor to the early settlers of 
this city by gathering together annually for an Old 
Settlers' Picnic and Reunion, and this year which 
marks the 71st anniversary of this Old Settlers' 
Reunion it will be held August 6, 1945, at Harm's 
Park, Western and Berteau Avenues, Chicago; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Monday, 
August 6, 1945, as Old Settlers' Day in Chicago, 
and urge all Chicagoans to commemorate this day 
in tribute to those early Chicago pioneers so largely 
responsible for Chicago's position today as the 
foremost city in the nation and urge that all those 
who can attend the Old Settlers' Picnic in their 
honor.

Designation of "Fort Dearborn Day in Chicago". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the 133rd anniversary of the Battle of 
Chicago was fought on the shores of Lake Michigan 
immediately following the evacuation of Fort Dear- 
born by United States troops, will be observed on 
Wednesday, August 15, 1945, and 

Whereas, this event, associated as it is with Chi- 
cago's earliest origin, carries with it a special 
historic significance effecting the growth and de- 
velopment of Chicago as one of the great cities of 
the world, and 

Whereas, it is especially appropriate at this time, 
with our nation waging a successful war for the 
survival of the principles of freedom, liberty and 
justice, that we pay special honor to the memory 
of those hardy and courageous pioneers who sacri- 
ficed their lives on August 15, 1812, in order that 
those same principles of liberty and freedom might 
be carried on by future generations of Americans, 
and in order that our community as we know it 
today might become firmly established; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do designate Wednesday, Au- 
gust 15, 1945, as Fort Dearborn Day in Chicago, 
and urge all citizens to observe this day in honor 
of the heroic men and women who braved peril, 
hardship and death in order that our country might 
expand and progress, and I further request that 
the National emblem be flown from all public and 
private buildings throughout the city on that day 
in commemoration of the Battle of Chicago. 

Dated this 31st day of July, A. D. 1945.

In Matter of City Council's Request for Inclusion of 

All Routes of Comprehensive Superhighway 

System in Federal Aid System. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Finance: 

State of Illinois 

Department of Public Works and Buildings 

Division of Highways 

Springfield 

July 31, 1945. 

Mr. Ludwig D. Schreiber, City Clerk, Room 107 
City Hall, Chicago 2, Illinois: 

Dear Mr. Schreiber — This is to acknowledge 
receipt of the resolution passed by the City Council 
of the City of Chicago requesting this Department 
to add to the Federal Aid System those routes of 
the Comprehensive Superhighway System as shown 
on the plan adopted by the City Council on April 
23, 1945. 

We will be very glad to give consideration to 
adding these routes to the Federal Aid System. 
However, we do not believe that this should be 
done at the present time. Congress Street, which 
is programmed for construction during the immedi- 



August 21, 1945 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

ate postwar period, has already been added to the 
Federal Aid System. We feel that we should delay 
adding further routes proposed by the Comprehen- 
sive Superhighway System entering Chicago until 
such projects are ready to be programmed for con- 
struction. Undoubtedly, the construction of the 
entire system will require many years after the end 
of hostilities, and we do not think it a wise policy 
to designate Federal Aid routes too far in advance 
of their construction. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) W. W. Polk, 
Chief Highway Engineer.

tings used in removing the tank contents

treatment after each successive usage. 
"The tags reporting the cleaning and 
bactericidal treatment of every tank in 
which milk or a milk product has been 
transported shall be kept on file at the 
milk receiving stations at which the tanks 
were loaded, for a period of at least 90 
days, and shall be available for inspec-

product from a source to which a Board 
of Health permit has not been issued, or 
arrives at a milk receiving station with- 
out a tag indicating when, where, and by 
whom it was cleaned, or is found to be 
unclean, it shall be cleaned before it is 
given bactericidal treatment, as herein- 
before prescribed. A tag recording both

shall be prepared and kept on file, as 
hereinbefore prescribed.

of milk or a milk product from a rail- 
road tank car to a pasteurizing plant, 
without an interval of delay between 
loads, shall not be required to be cleaned 
and bactericidally treated, and tagged, 
after the removal of each successive load, 
provided such tanks comply with the said 
requirements before the first of the said 
successive loads is placed therein. 

"The top manhole, the inlet port, and 
the outlet valve cover of every tank used 
for the transportation of milk or a milk 
product, except those housed in closed 
railroad cars, shall be sealed, immediately

tion, by a means approved by the Board 
of Health. Railroad car doors shall be 
sealed promptly after the loading of the

seals, or each tank in the car shall be 
sealed in the manner prescribed for tanks 
on automobile trucks. Such seals shall 
remain unbroken until the tank contents 
are transferred into the custody of the 
consignee. In cases of multiple deliveries 
from the same load, the foregoing re- 
quirement shall apply only to transport 
between the loading point and the first 
consignee. 



"The contents of every tank of milk or 
milk product in transport shall be identi- 
fied by a tag attached to the outlet. Such 
tags shall bear the following information: 
(a) a designation of the contents of the 
tank, as defined in Section 154-1 of the 
Municipal Code; (b) the name, the per- 
mit number, and the post office address 
of the milk receiving station at which the 
contents were collected or processed; (c)

ducers; and (d) the name and address of 
the consignee. 

"In the event that the contents of a tank 
consist of portions from two or more re- 
ceiving stations, such tank shall be tagged 
so as to indicate the source and amount 
of each such portion.

The following is said order as passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways be and he is hereby authorized, in 
accordance with his recommendation of July 10, 
1945, attached hereto and made a part hereof, to 
issue a final voucher in the amount of $31,812.52, 
to the Wadeford Electric Company, contractor for 
material furnished and work performed on Con- 
tract E-1, State Street Subway, said sum to be in 
full settlement of the amounts due on said con- 
tract, including a lump sum settlement of $8,074.60 
in payment for maintenance, work and service fur- 
nished during the period of delay, and also the 
sum of $5,095.88 in full settlement of the claim 
submitted for cost of wages, insurance and mis- 
cellaneous expense during the period of delay; and 
the Comptroller and the City Treasurer are author- 
ized and directed to pass for payment voucher for 
same when approved by the Commissioner of Sub- 
ways and Superhighways. 



The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 10, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the ComTnittee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is to certify that Contract E-1 
of the State Street Subway, approved by the City 
Council on May 29, 1941 (See C. J., p. 4934), has 
been satisfactorily completed by the Wadeford 
Electric Company, contractor. A final inspection 
of the work was made on October 14, 1943 by 
Messrs. DeLeuw, Gunlock, Post and McGregor 
representing the City, Messrs. Turpin, Seymour 
and Barnett representing the P. W. A., and Mr. 
H. Lundberg represented the contractor. 



The contract was awarded to the low bidder, 
based on unit and lump sum prices bid by the 
contractor on the various items of work, and in- 
cluded the furnishing and installation of electrical 
equipment and materials for the State Street Sub- 
way, located between the Chicago River and W. 
Willow Street. It was also provided in the contract 
that the contractor would maintain the pumps, 
drainage system, electric lights and other electric 
facilities previously installed under other contracts, 
and located within the above limits. This mainte- 
nance also included the furnishing of electrical 
energy necessary to operate the pumps, lights and 
other electrical facilities. It was specified in the 
contract that the cost of such maintenance and 
electric energy was to be included in the contrac- 
tor's unit and lump sum bid prices. 

The contractor was directed to commence work 
on the contract not later than June 16, 1941, and 
to complete all work within the 180 days specified 
in the contract, thus establishing December 12, 
1941, as the theoretical or specified completion 
date. Work was actually started on June 16, 1941, 
and the final inspection of the completed contract 
was made on October 14, 1943, or 671 days (22 
months) after the specified time for completion 
of the work. 

As a result of this delay the contractor has 
claimed payment for the cost of the above mainte- 
nance during the 22-month delay period, and in 
addition, has filed other claims, totaling $50,923.03 
for cost of wages, insurance, and miscellaneous 
expenses alleged to have been incurred during the 
same delay period. 

Because of the conditions existing when bids 
were taken on this contract shortly before the war, 
we anticipated possible delays in the completion 
of the contract, because of the critical materials 
and equipment, such as wire, cable, switchboards 
and electrical cabinets, needed for the work. In 
order to eliminate undue or excessive amounts for 
such contingencies from the contractors bid prices, 
we provided in the contract specifications for reim- 
bursing the contractor for certain extra expenses 
thus incurred. 

Although the work was delayed twenty-two 
months, we have limited the City's obligation to 
reimburse the contractor for extra expenses in- 
curred only during a twelve-month delay period, 
as determined below: 

1. The Wadeford Electric Company is the con- 
tractor for both Contracts E-1 and E-2. Un- 
der Contract E-2, we entered into a supple- 
mentary agreement (approved by city council 
June 23, 1943, C.J., p. 319 and September 15, 
1943, C.J., p. 557) with the Wadeford Electric 
Company for the maintenance of the entire 
State Street and Dearborn Street Subways, 
including the area previously maintained un- 
der Contract E-1. This supplementary agree- 
ment included the waiver by the contractor of 
all claims due to unavoidable delay incurred 
after June 25, 1943. 

2. Although the theoretical or specified comple- 
tion date was December 12, 1941, we have 
estimated that work would not have been com- 
pleted until June 25, 1942, if the materials 
and equipment had been available, because of 
a shortage of electricians and because the con- 
tractor had delayed furnishing certain shop 
drawings. 

3. Because of the above, we have limited the 
City's obligation to reimburse the contractor 



3856 



JOURNAI^— CITY COUNCII^— CHICAGO 



August 21, 1945 



for certain extra costs and expenses incurred 
only during the twelve-month period between 
June 25, 1942 and June 25, 1943. 

We maintained accurate records of the cost of 
maintaining the pumps, drainage system, electric 
lights and other electrical facilities, together with 
the necessary electric energy, used during the 
twelve-month delay period, and have determined 
that this amounts to $8,074.60. This does not 
include any maintenance expense incurred during 
the balance (ten months) of the delay period, nor 
any profit or overhead for the Contractor. This 
amount has been approved for payment by the 
Project Engineer, P. W. A., as noted on the at- 
tached P. W. A. Contract Memorandum. The 
Corporation Counsel has also approved payment 
for such extra expense as noted in the attached 
opinion dated May 31, 1945. 

Also attached is a breakdown of the contractor's 
other claims, totaling $50,923.03 and our recom- 
mended settlement in the total amount of $5,095.88. 
In our opinion this is a reasonable settlement and 
includes only extra expenses chargeable to the City 
and incurred during the twelve-month delay pe- 
riod, and does not include any profit or overhead 
for the contractor. Attached is the approval of 
this amount by the Project Engineer, P. W. A., as 
well as the Corporation Counsel's opinion dated 
May 31, 1945, which states in part: 

"As the contract provides for extra compen- 
sation in the event of unavoidable delays occa- 
sioned by the failure of the Contractor to obtain 
critical materials and equipment, and as you have 
determined the period of such unavoidable delay 
and the amount of extra expenses and costs for 
which the Contractor is entitled to reimburse- 
ment, it follows that you properly can recom- 
mend the proposed settlement to the City Council 
and it legally can authorize payment of the pro- 
posed settlement of $5,095.88 to the Contractor." 

The final cost of the contract, as determined from 
our final estimate amounts to $181,703.15, and in- 
cludes the above recommended payments of $8,- 
074.60 and $5,095.88. This amount is $12,031.39 
more than the total amount authorized to date by 
the City Council. We have paid the contractor a 
total of $149,890.63, leaving a balance unpaid of 
$31,812.52. 

As all of the work under this contract was per- 
formed within the subway, it has not affected nor 
damaged any City-owned utilities or property un- 
der the jurisdiction of other City departments. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as the 
work is satisfactorily completed, and as we con- 
sider the settlement of the above claims to be rea- 
sonable, which settlement has also been approved 
as to legality by the Corporation Counsel, and as 
to amount by the Project Engineer, P. W. A., that 
you recommend to the City Council that it author- 
ize the Acting Commissioner of Subways and Su- 
perhighways to: 

1. Include the lump sum amount of $8,074.60 in 
the final payment to the contractor for pay- 
ment of maintenance work and service fur- 
nished during the twelve-month delay period 
chargeable to the City under the terms of the 
contract. 

2. Include the lump sum amount of $5,095.88 in 
the final payment to the contractor in full 
settlement of their claims, totaling $50,923.03, 
resulting from delays in obtaining critical ma- 
terials. 



Make final payment of $31,812.52 to the Wade- 
ford Electric Company, contractor, for mate- 
rial furnished and work performed on Contract 
E-1 of the State Street Subway, including the 
proposed settlement of claims recommended 
under 1 and 2 above. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock, 
Acting Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 13, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is to certify that Contract 
E-2 of the State Street Subway, approved by the 
City Council on July 24, 1941 (See C. J., p. 5232), 



August 21, 1945 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



3857 



has been satisfactorily completed by the Wadeford 
Electric Company, contractor. A final inspection 
of the work was made on October 14, 1943, by 
Messrs. DeLeuw, Gunlock, Post and McGregor 
representing the City, Messrs. Turpin, Seymour 
and Barnett representing the P.W.A., and Mr. H. 
Lundberg represented the contractor. 

The contract was awarded to the low bidder, 
based on unit and lump sum prices bid by the con- 
tractor on the various items of work, and included 
the furnishing and installation of electrical equip- 
ment and materials for the State Street Subway 
between the north bank of the Chicago River and 
13th Street, and in the W. Washington Street, W. 
Court Place, W. Quincy Street and W. Jackson 
Street passageways. It was also provided in the 
contract that the contractor would maintain the 
pumps, drainage system, electric lights and other 
electric facilities previously installed under other 
contracts, and located within the above limits, as 
well as similar equipment and facilities previously 
installed in the Dearborn Street Subway between 
a point near Randolph Street and Van Buren 
Street. This maintenance also included the fur- 
nishing of electrical energy necessary to operate the 
pumps, lights and other electrical facilities. It was 
specified in the contract that the cost of such 
maintenance and electrical energy was to be in- 
cluded in the contractor's unit and lump sum bid 
prices. 

The contractor was directed to commence work 
on the contract not later than August 18, 1941, 
and to complete all work within the 240 days 
specified in the contract, thus establishing April 
14, 1942, as the theoretical or specified completion 
date. However, the final inspection of the com- 
pleted contract was made on October 14, 1943, or 
547 days (18 months) after the specified time for 
completion of the work. 

As a result of this delay the contractor has 
claimed payment for the cost of the above main- 
tenance during the 18-month delay period, in ad- 
dition, has filed other claims, totaling $75,013.02, 
for cost of wages, insurance and miscellaneous ex- 
penses alleged to have been incurred during the 
same delay period. 

Because of the conditions existing when bids 
were taken on this contract shortly before the war, 
we anticipated possible delays in the completion of 
the contract, because of the critical materials and 
equipment, such as wire, cable, switchboards and 
electrical cabinets, needed for the work. In order 
to eliminate undue or excessive amounts for such 
contingencies from the contractor's bid prices, we 
provided in the contract specifications for reim- 
bursing the contractor for certain extra expenses 
thus incurred. 

Although the work was delayed eighteen months, 
we have limited the City's obligation to reimburse 
the contractor for certain extra expenses incurred 
only during a six-month delay period, as deter- 
mined below: 

1. The Wadeford Electric Company is the con- 
tractor for both Contracts E-1 and E-2. Un- 
der this Contract E-2, we entered into a sup- 
plementary agreement, (approved by City 
Council June 23, 1943, C. J. p. 319 and Sep- 
tember 15, 1943, C. J. p. 557) with the Wade- 
ford Electric Company for the maintenance 
of the entire State Street and Dearborn 
Street Subway, including the area previously 
maintained under both Contracts E-1 and 
E-2. This supplementary agreement included 



the waiver by the contractor of all claims due 
to unavoidable delay incurred after June 25, 
1943. 

2. Although the theoretical or specified comple- 
tion date was April 14, 1942, we have esti- 
mated that work would not have been com- 
pleted until December 25, 1942, if the ma- 
terials and equipment had been available, be- 
cause of a shortage of electricians and be- 
cause the contractor had delayed furnishing 
certain shop drawings. 

3. Because of the above, we have limited the 
City's obligation to reimburse the contractor 
for certain extra costs and expenses incurred 
only during the six-month period between De- 
cember 25, 1942 and June 25, 1943. 

We maintained accurate records of the cost of 
maintaining the pumps, drainage system, electric 
lights and other electric facilities, together with 
the necessary electric energy used during the six- 
month delay period, and have determined that this 
amounts to $7,857.06. This does not include any 
maintenance expense incurred during the balance 
(twelve months) of the delay period, nor any 
profit or overhead for the contractor. This amount 
has been approved for payment by the Project 
Engineer, P.W.A., as noted on the attached P.WA. 
Contract Memorandum. The Corporation Counsel 
has also approved payment for such extra expense 
as noted in the attached opinion dated July 3, 1945. 

Also attached is a breakdown of the contractor's 
other claims, totaling $75,013.02 and our recom- 
mended settlement in the total amount of $8,761.86. 
In our opinion this is a reasonable settlement and 
includes only extra expenses chargeable to the City 
and incurred during the six-month delay period, 
and does not include any profit or overhead for the 
contractor. Attached is the approval of this 
amount by the Project Engineer, P.W.A., as well 
as the Corporation Counsel's opinion dated July 
3, 1945, which states in part: 

"As the contract provides for extra compensa- 
tion in the event of unavoidable delays oc- 
casioned by the failure of the Contractor to ob- 
tain critical materials and equipment, and as 
you have determined the period of such unavoid- 
able delay and the amount of extra expenses 
and costs for which the Contractor is entitled to 
reimbursement, it follows that you properly can 
recommend the proposed settlement to the city 
council and it legally can authorize payment of 
the proposed settlement of $8,761.86 to the Con- 
tractor." 

Included in the completed work was certain ex- 
tra work necessary to recircuit wiring which had 
been installed in the State Street Subway between 
Lake Street and Roosevelt Road. This work was 
ordered in order to obtain uniform lighting in the 
station areas within the above limits. The cost of 
this work on a cost plus 15% basis amounts to 
$546.08. We recommend this for payment and 
have attached hereto the approval of the amount 
by the Project Engineer, P.W.A. 

The final cost of the contract as determined 
from our final estimate and approved by the Proj- 
ect Engineer, P.W.A. amounts to $276,685.10, and 
includes the above recommended payments of 
$7,857.06, $8,761.86 and $546.08, respectively. This 
amount is $12,247.24 more than the total amount 
authorized to date by the City Council. We have 
paid the contractor a total of $227,857.32, leaving 
a balance unpaid of $48,827.78.

As all the work under this contract was per- 
formed within the subway, it has not aifected nor 
damaged any City-owned utilities or property un- 
der the jurisdiction of other City departments. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as the 
work is satisfactorily completed, and as we con- 
sider the settlement of the above claims to be rea- 
sonable, which settlement has also been approved 
as to legality by the Corporation Counsel, and as 
to amount by the Project Engineer, P.W.A., that 
you recommend to the city council that it authorize 
the Acting Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways to: 

1. Include the lump sum amount of $7,857.06 in 
the final payment to the contractor for pay- 
ment of maintenance work and service fur- 
nished during the six-month delay period 
chargeable to the City under the terms of the 
contract. 

2. Include the lump sum amount of $8,761.86 in 
the final payment to the contractor in full 
settlement of their claims, totaling $75,013.02, 
resulting from delays in obtaining critical 
materials. 

3. Include the lump sum amount of $546.08 in 
the final payment to the contractor as pay- 
ment in full for recircuiting wires in the 
State Street Subway. 

4. Make final payment of $48,827.78 to the 
Wadeford Electric Company, contractor, for 
material furnished and work performed on 
Contract E-2 of the State Street Subway, 
including the proposed settlement of claims 
and additional work recommended under 1, 
2 and 3 above. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock,

valves on supply lines shall be located within the 
city. The city shall have the right to regulate 
valves in order to limit the rate of flow. 

If at any time the meter or meters shall fail 
to register correctly the quantity of water sup- 
plied, or shall fail to register the flow of water 
through said meter or meters, the unregistered, 
under-registered or over-registered amount of 



water shall be determined by taking an average 
of twelve preceding readings of such meter or 
meters, exclusive of deficient or excessive read- 
ings. Where the meter or meters have been in- 
stalled for a period of less than one year or 
where less than twelve competent readings ex- 
ist, such average or estimate may be based upon 
a lesser number than twelve readings taken pre- 
ceding or subsequent to such incorrect or stopped 
registrations. In both instances, the commis- 
sioner of public works shall determine which are 
excessive and which are deficient readings, and 
shall also determine the number of months upon 
which the estimate is to be based. 

185-56.5. Water charges.) The minimum 
amount to be charged for water service to any 
private person or corporation for premises lo- 
cated outside the corporate limits of the city 
shall be the metered rate of a dollar and a half 
per thousand cubic feet of water, subject to a 
corresponding increase or decrease if the me- 
tered rate fixed by ordinance and charged con- 
sumers within the city shall be increased or 
decreased, and subject to the same rate of dis- 
count allowed by ordinance to consumers of me- 
tered water within the city. 

185-56.6. Billing.) Water service for large 
consumers shall be billed monthly, and water 
service for other consumers shall be billed bi- 
monthly; provided, however, that the commis- 
sioner of public works may in his discretion 
render bills for small consumption in quarterly 
periods. 

185-56.7. Deposit.) The applicant shall 
make a deposit in such amount of money as the 
commissioner of public works may request when 
filing the application to insure the prompt pay- 
ment of the city's water bills and any other ex- 
pense to the city by reason of the furnishing of 
such service. 

185-56.8. Termination. ) All right and privi- 
lege of the applicant to receive such water supply 
and service may be terminated by the mayor in 
his discretion, and may be terminated by the 
commissioner of public works at any time upon 
the failure of such applicant to promptly pay 
the citys' water bills when rendered, or to pay 
any other expense or charge rendered against 
applicant by the city incidental to the supply 
of such water service, and upon the neglect or 
refusal to comply with any provision of this 
ordinance applicable to such service. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage and approval.

Bequest to U. S. War Dept. to Arrange for De-

Whereas, our victorious army which has been 
battling the Japanese under the leadership of Gen- 
eral Douglas MacArthur has now fully occupied the 
Isles of Japan; and 

Whereas, General MacArthur has announced 
through the medium of the press that by reason 
of the success of the initial occupation, only reg- 
ular army troops will be required for the further 
demobilization of the Japanese army and the po- 
licing of the defeated country; and 

Whereas, one of the combat units under Gen- 
eral MacArthur is the 33rd Infantry Division which 
participated in the campaigns of New Guinea, the 
Dutch East Indies and the Philippine Islands with 
great distinction, valor and outstanding acclaim, 
and liberated the summer capital of the Philippines 
— the City of Baguio and its environs ; and 

Whereas^ the 33rd Infantry Division is the unit 
which left Illinois on March 5, 1941 as the Illinois 
National Guard; and 

Whereas, Chicago is proud of the great record 
of achievement, accomplishment and distinguished 
heroism of these soldiers who are Chicago's and 
Illinois' Own; and 

Whereas^ Chicago deems it fitting and proper 
that it should be permitted to do honor to these 
sons who have so distinguished themselves in the 
defense of their country, in appropriate ceremonies ; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, that the War 
Department be and is hereby requested that the 
33rd Infantry Division be demobilized as a unit at 
or near Chicago so that suitable official recognition 
can be given to these valiant sons of Illinois; and 

Be it Further Resolved, that a copy of this reso- 
lution be forwarded by the City Clerk to the Presi- 
dent of the United States, the Secretary of War, 
the Chief of Staff and the Congressional delega- 
tion from Illinois ; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That the Mayor be au- 
thorized to take all steps necessary to effectuate 
the purposes of this resolution.

Rescission of Prohibition Against Issuance of Build- 
ing Permits Without Certification as to Com- 
pliance with Orders of Federal Agencies. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

September 10, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am transmitting herewith, for 
your consideration, an ordinance repealing a para- 
graph added April 15, 1942 to Section 43-3 of the 
Municipal Code of Chicago (Council Journal, p. 
6862), which paragraph inhibits, for the duration 
of the War, the issuance of building permits unless 
the applicant for permit shall furnish evidence of 
the proper Federal officer or agency that the pro- 
posed construction is not prohibited by any Fed- 
eral agency. 

The inhibition was designed as a measure to co- 
operate with the Federal authorities during the 
active prosecution of the War. While there has 
been no formal proclamation by the President that 
the Wars with Germany and Japan are at an end, 
agreements have been concluded by the warring 
powers and hostilities have ceased. It seems there- 
fore that the ordinance prohibition has served its 
purpose and should now be repealed in order to 
stimulate building construction work throughout 
the city. I, therefore, recommend the enactment of 
the repealing ordinance. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

By unanimous consent committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Bowler moved to pass the proposed ordi- 
nance submitted with the foregoing communication. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as follows:

Connelly, Hartnett, Michael P. Hogan, Wagner, 
Kovarik, Sheridan, Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Pistilli,

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. Section 43-3 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended by striking out the last 
paragraph of said section as printed, said para- 
graph reading as follows : 

For the duration of the war the commissioner

of buildings shall issue no permit for the con- 
struction, erection, addition to or alteration of 
any building or structure unless the applicant

struction is not prohibited by any order of the 
War Production Board, the Division of Industry

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

September 6, 1945. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — ^At the recent session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly Senate Bill No. 206 was passed and 
approved June 6, 1945. This bill amends Article 23 
of the "Revised Cities and Villages Act" which 
Article enumerates the powers of the city council 
by adding section 23-108 thereto. The added sec- 
tion reads as follows: 



"Sec. 23-108. To regulate the lighting of stairs, 
vestibules, passageways and common ways in 
premises containing more than two flats or apart- 
ments and to require the owner, lessee, person, 
firm or corporation having control of said stairs, 
vestibules, passageways and common ways to 
light the same." 

Prior to the enactment of this provision, several 
aldermen requested opinions of this department as 
to the authority of the council to require by ordi- 
nance the lighting of halls and stairways. In every 
case we were compelled by reason of the decision in 
Stoessand v. Frank, 283 111. 271 (1918) to hold that 
the council was without power to enact such an 
ordinance. 

We are of the opinion the council by virtue of 
the foregoing Act now has power to enact such an 
ordinance. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Al F. Gorman, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel. 
Approved : 
(Signed) Barnet Hodes,

tinguished group is gathered to see the presenta- 
tion of the National Noise Abatement Council's 
Silver Plaque to Chicago. This is the third year 
in succession that Chicago has won this signal 
honor. The next voice you hear will be that of 
Mayor Edward J. Kelly of Chicago. 

Mayor: The Chair recognizes Alderman Gillespie, 
Chairman of the Committee on Health. 

Alderman Gillespie: Mr. Mayor, I move a suspen- 
sion of the rules in order to take up a special mat- 
ter of importance to the City of Chicago and to the 
national postwar effort, on behalf of my committee. 

Mayor: Alderman Gillespie moves a suspension of 
the rules. If there is no objection, so ordered. 

Alderman Gillespie: The City Council is honored 
this morning by the presence of a distinguished 
business man from Buffalo, New York, who has 
come here as president of the National Noise Abate- 
ment Council to recognize our achievements in the 
suppression of unnecessary noise. 

Chicago, as a city, has made a wonderful record 
in minimizing the unnecessary noises which affect 
us all in our business and in our home life. 

We have been an example to the nation in this 
program. 

Today, for the third successive year, we are be- 
ing honored as a result of that program. 

We shall continue to work for the health and the 
most beneficial efforts of all by renewing our cam- 
paign to stop needless noise. 

Our guest today is president of the National 
Noise Abatement Council. We are very grateful to 
him for taking the time from his business to come 
here and talk to us. 

I am very happy to present him to you — Mr. 
George W. Handy, of Buffalo. . . . Mr. Handy. 

Mr. Handy: Mayor Kelly, gentlemen of the City 
Council, and guests: 

In furthering the program to reduce unnecessary 
noise, I feel confident that we have the full sup- 
port of the radio audience, as well as of those here. 

As an incentive to the local committees, each 
year the National Noise Abatement Council has 
named four cities, one in each of four population 
groups, to receive an annual achievement award 
for meritorious civic accomplishment in the abate- 
ment of needless noise. 

These awards are made on the basis of evidence 
submitted by the competing cities, demonstrating 
by fact and example what each has done to encour- 
age interest in noise elimination among its citi- 
zens. 

In naming the winners of its achievement awards, 
the National Noise Abatement Council does not 
mean to suggest that these are necessarily the na- 
tion's quietest cities, although in some cases this 
may be true. 

It does mean that the cities named have notably 
achieved the benefits of quiet. 

A Silver Plaque, symbolic of the award, is being 
given to each of the winning cities. This plaque, 
designed by the eminent sculptor, Rene Paul 
Chambellan, depicts Aeneas, hero of Virgil's 
"Aeneid", overcoming the many-headed monster, 
Cerberus, who guarded the gates to Hades. The 
necks of Cerberus are seen bristling with snakes 
as he lunges at Aeneas, who is portrayed in the 
act of hurling bits of drugged food into the jaws 
of the beast. This, according to Virgil's tale, effec- 
tively quells Cerberus, who falls asleep. 

Of course, the connection is that, in much the 
same way that Aeneas gave Cerberus the old "one- 



two", the members of the Chicago Noise Abatement 
Commission have administered the "knock-out" 
blow to another demon, called noise. He hasn't 
quit completely; but, gradually, we're whittling 
him down to size. 

Noise is a many-headed monster striking in all 
directions. It wreaks havoc, not only physically, 
but mentally and spiritually. The daily, inhuman 
racket of modern life has made reflective, poised 
living almost an impossibility for the average city 
dweller. 

If we are to realize fully the fruits of victory in 
the day of peace before us, it is imperative that 
something be done about it. Fortunately, some- 
thing is being done! 

In Chicago, the campaign for quiet has been con- 
ducted by the Chicago Noise Abatement Commis- 
sion. The Commission is well and favorably known 
to the National Noise Abatement Council. In the 
brief time since the Chicago Noise Abatement Com- 
mission was organized — only two and one-half 
years ago — major steps have been taken to blanket 
the city with a program furthering the well-being 
of every citizen. 

The Chicago Noise Abatement Commission im- 
mediately recognized that the sleep of war workers, 
particularly those of night wo^-kers and "swing- 
shifters", must be protected if they were to be 
healthy and efficient at their jobs. Consequently, 
every effort was made on behalf of those who 
worked nights and slept davs. Cards, placards, and 
announcements were distributed to hundreds of 
war plants, and hundreds of thousands of war 
workers read them and remembered the slogan: 
"Quiet, Please ! War Essential Workers Need Their 
Rest!" 

Another angle of the campaign to stop needless 
noise reached every public and parochial school in 
the city, and still another branched into business 
and industry outside the war plant category. 

The hundreds of letters thanking the Commission 
for its program to minimize needless noise proved 
how successful this campaign was. 

Now, in the days of peace that lie ahead, and 
with a most successful achievement record as a 
foundation, the Chicago Noise Abatem'^nt Commis- 
sion will press forward to insure the benefits of its 
many-sided program. 

It is with great pleasure that, to the City of 
Chicago and Mayor Edward J. K°lly, I give this 
silver plaque for outstanding achievement in the 
elimination of needless noise, and for distinguished 
service to the Council's nation-wide noise abate- 
ment program. 

Mayor: Thank you, Mr. Handy. 

On behalf of the City Council and the people of 
Chicago, it is a pleasure and an honor to accept 
this award. 

It is most gratifying to receive such splendid 
recognition from the National Noise Abatement 
Council for the progress we have made. 

During the past few years everyone has become 
more and more conscious of noise, and to recog- 
nize its harmful effects. With Chicago the hub of 
the nation's industrial production, perhaps this was 
more noticeable here than in other sections of the 
country. For it was only na*^ural that, as our 
industrial activity increased, noise increased in pro- 
portion. 

Medical science was quick to recognize the dis- 
turbing factors of noise. Research proved that 
nervous disorders were aggravated — even hearing 
was impaired — by the mounting Bedlam of noise 
in our large cities.

JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL/— CHICAGO 



September 18, 1945 



All experiments have shown that much of this 
noise is needless and unnecessary, and that it can 
be avoided with a little care and effort. It is up to 
us, as a city and as individuals, to use every pos- 
sible measure to minimize unnecessary noise, so 
that the well-being of every citizen is furthered. 

Recognizing this is a vital precaution to protect 
health, as well as a means of increasing production 
during the long years of the war, Chicago pro- 
ceeded to do all in its power to eliminate unneces- 
sary noise. 

That our program has been successful is at- 
tested not only by the fact that we have been 
awarded the national silver plaque for the third 
consecutive year, but by the sincere cooperation of 
public and parochial schools, civic clubs, our great 
industrial plants, individuals, newspapers, and the 
radio. 

As citizens of every large city know, it is not a 
simple matter to stop noise. Buses, street cars, 
elevated and railroad trains, must run. Traffic 
flows unceasingly. Children must have the free- 
dom to run and play that is their right. As indi- 
viduals, we are entitled to go about our activities 
unhampered. All of these factors, however, con- 
tribute to the total that becomes "noise" for a 
great metropolis. 

Our first step was to recognize that noise is sel- 
dom intentional. None of us, either as individuals 
or in groups, tries to see how much unnecessary 
noise he can make. Our objective, therefore, has 
been to emphasize to the people of Chicago the 
harmful effects of noise, and to seek their coopera- 
tion in keeping all needless noise at a minimum. 

The results of our efforts have been gratifying 
to all of us. There was an instant response from 
industry, business, and manufacturing concerns. 
School children joined the "Quiet, Please Rangers" 
and promised to observe the rules of quiet and 
consideration in their play. In their neighbors' 
windows, individuals saw the "Quiet, Please" cards 



that were distributed to war workers — and they 
respected those cards. War plant executives wrote 
to say how much they commended the program, 
and that production levels were definitely increased 
when workers had proper rest and sleep. 

Chicago is proud to receive the award of the 
National Noise Abatement Council. However, we 
have no intention of standing still, or resting on 
our laurels. The world has returned to peace — a 
peace that promises increased health, happiness, 
and prosperity to every individual. It is the pur- 
pose of the Chicago Noise Abatement Commission 
to do everything in its power to further that peace, 
to put renewed vigor into the campaign to insure 
health, happiness, and prosperity. 

We recognize that full success in this anti-noise 
campaign — and I emphasize "Anti-iVeedZess-Noise" 
campaign — cannot be achieved without cooperation. 
What advances we have made have been due to 
the cooperation we have received, and that we know 
we will continue to receive, from business, industry, 
civic groups, and individuals. We intend, again this 
year, and in the years ahead, to call on everyone — 
every person in business, industry, the schools, and 
every other citizen throughout the city — to do 
everything he possibly can to aid in this task. We 
are wholeheartedly grateful for the cooperation 
that we have received. 

As a city, and as individuals, we will strive again 
in the coming year to merit the honor that has 
been given us, and to make Chicago the city in 
the nation most free from noise. 

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, you have heard 
a program from the Council Chamber in the City 
Hall of Chicago, during which Mayor Kellv has re- 
ceived, on behalf of the City of Chicago, the award 
of the National Noise Abatement Council. The 
award, a silver plaque, was given Chicago for the 
third consecutive year in its program to abate un- 
necessary noise.
